Dzofilm has introduced a new Gnosis Macro 24mm T2.8 lens. The cine lens is available with interchangeable mounts: LPL, PL, and EF. With this lens, the manufacturer supplemented the line of optics with a fixed focal length, which already includes: 32mm, 65mm, and 90mm. The cost of Dzofilm 24mm T2.8 is the same as that of other lenses in the series.
The new lens also received macro capabilities. The optics are designed to cover large format sensors and provide a viewing angle of 83.8°.
At the same time, the lens has the same dimensions as the other three lenses in the series: length – 11.2 cm, and front diameter – 114 mm. Dzofilm Gnosis Macro 24mm T2.8 comes in a hard case with interchangeable mounts, a screwdriver, screws, and a set of special spacers for installing bayonet mounts.
The focus scale is marked in both feet and meters. The lens itself, like the entire line, is made of aluminum alloy. It also has a maximum aperture of T2.8, unified for the Dzofilm Gnosis series. The weight of all lenses in the line is from 1280 to 1460 grams (depending on the focal length and the installed mount).
The Dzofilm Gnosis Macro 24mm T2.8 has a 12-blade aperture that should provide smooth bokeh. The optical design uses three high refractive indexes (HRI) elements and two low dispersion (ED) elements. This design provides chromatic aberration control and vibrant color reproduction.
The new lens allows you to shoot videos at a magnification ratio of 1.25:1 at a minimum focal length of 15.5 cm.
All Dzofilm Gnosis lenses can focus to infinity, so they can be used for various types of shooting. The 300° manual focus ring travel is the same for all four lenses in the range.
